Champramary in the Dooars.

Another GJMM leader in the Dooars, Mr Binod Gathani, said he was not informed about the exact date for Mr Giri’s visit to Western Dooars, particularly the Mateli block where several GJMM supporters joined the Congress and the Trinamul Congress recently.

Splinter ABAVP leader Sukra Munda associated with the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and its ally ~ the GJMM ~ said: “We have got information about Mr Giri’s visit to the Dooars. However, the date of his visit is yet

to announced. At present Mr Giri is in Kolkata.”
